Made to Crave Online Bible Study

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Today was the official start day for the Made to Crave OBS. I read Chapter 1 in preparation for the blog tomorrow. Wow, what a powerful chapter. A couple of things I took away from chapter 1 are:

1. I try to have my physical desires fulfilled outside of the will of God.
2. I try to get my material desires met outside of the will of God.
3. I try to get my need for significance met outside of the will of God.

I try to do/get all three of these. I have some serious work ahead of me. God made us to crave God, but we get way off track!

The verse that struck me the most in this chapter was 1 Cor 10:23 ~ "Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial." (Not the KJV).

I'm looking forward to getting into the meat of this study beginning tomorrow.

    Can you send me more information on the OBS? I would like to participate in something like that for Lent, which is coming up.

    Great thoughts!

    I agree that we get way off track and that Satan has some pretty clever ways to keep us off track.

    I'm convinced that the tools I learn to use in this study will help me in all areas that I crave other things over God, not just food.

    Have a great day!
